AMORY, Miss. (WTVA) - A business and a church in the Amory area posted signs recently telling people to vote "no" on legalizing alcohol sales.
Amory will hold a special election December 10 in which city voters will approve or reject the proposal.

There are two propositions on the ballot. One proposition is for the sale of beer and light wine. The second proposition is for liquor.
"I'm old enough that I don't like seeing wrecks. If people are drinking and having wrecks, I'm going to be against it," said Thomas Stafford, the owner of an auto body shop just outside of the city.
Thomas has a sign outside of his business reading, "Alcohol Causes Wrecks, Wrecks Kill People, Vote No."
"I have seen too many wrecks," he said. "I have been driving a wrecker for 50 years and been in business since 1981, and I've seen a lot of people hurt by drunk drivers."
Providence Baptist Church also has a sign out front reading, "Do Not Snooze, Vote No For Booze."
